(Worthy News) – A federal judge in Louisiana has blocked President Biden’s temporary ban on new leases to drill for oil and gas on public lands, setting back his efforts on climate change.
U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana Judge Terry Doughty issued a preliminary injunction Tuesday blocking the administration from enforcing its ban. The judge’s order applies nationwide.
“Millions and possibly billions of dollars are at stake,” Doughty wrote in a 44-page memorandum accompanying the injunction, according to NBC News. “Local government funding, jobs for Plaintiff State workers, and funds for the restoration of Louisiana’s Coastline are at stake. Plaintiff states have a reliance interest in the proceeds derived from offshore and on land oil and gas lease sales.” [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
